Ok Here goes:

- I am perpetually pale. - I’ve been like this since birth… I’ve been called an ALBINO by funny little street kids back when I was 7…(they ran away when I wanted to befriend them – heehee…funny but it was traumatic back in the day)! Then back in high school and college, I enjoyed a constant faint tan from being in the beach every weekend (My skin burns easily so I can’t be tanorexic – it’s either go easy on the suntan or be red and sore as a freshly boiled crab!). Though times have changed now, I hardly have time to go to the beach (which is at least 3 hours away from Manila) so I have nothing much to do about my pale skin, most of my siblings have the same skin-tone and some of them cannot survive without tanning… thus, I suffer from being called MAYO – for mayonnaise or NANA- our local term for PUS (which is normally WHITE in color… eww) – it drives me nuts!

- I go crazy over colored Pilot Pens, and now Sharpies! - A practice I’ve brought with me since high school. My notebooks are usually strewn with multi-colored handwriting and without a fuchsia pen… I refused to take down notes (it had to be a special Pilot fuchsia pen… not baby pink, not neon pink – but fuchsia pink!). I love Sharpies too… specially the new hip colors they just came out with… it’s a QUIRK quite hard to break!

- I am a bookworm - I guess it's pretty much self-explanatory. Once I start reading a book and get hooked...there's no stopping anymore! It was such an easy thing to do that back when I was single... I just locked myself up in my room and pretended to be asleep when someone would knock or call (heehee bad!), but now with hubby resorting to silly antics while trying to pull me away from my book (he has an attention disorder you know... kidding heehee) and my baby trying to rip my book apart each time she sees me staring into it when she's with us -- I just have no other choice but to put those books down. If I could finish a book an a few hours before, today- it takes days to finish a book on an "installment basis".

- I am a bag-a-holic. – I haven’t posted much of my babies here, as I try to devote this site to my outfits only (and I also know that my purses might steal the limelight from me… heehee). I’ve been a baghag since high school, I wanted my bags to look different from the rest – so while we all had our Jansport backpacks (mine had to be purple)… I would shift to the bowler bag or patent bags in vivid colors – I loved it when my bags started conversations even with random strangers from school. It then morphed into a designer bag addiction… and though my collection of luxury bags is quite small compared to other baghags out there (check out TPF!!! I have the urge to line my bags up and take a picture of them all, like those ladies on TPF... but I'm still too lazy to do so), I have Coach and Dooneys to start off, then Marc Jacobs, then Louis Vuittons, then Chanels…it’s slowly growing!! I’m targeting a Goyard St. Louis next and I want a tangerine or aqua Hermes Kelly before I reach 50 heeehee!

- I am such a sucker for Cheese and Vinegar - yes, you read that right.... V-I-N-E-G-A-R, Cane, Balsamic, Spicy, Sweet Vinegar... I can eat Cheetos, Doritos and any kind of salty chips with vinegar, I sprinkle vinegar over my rice after eating salty food just for the heck of it... we have a local delight we call "tuyo"-- sun-dried salty fish which I love to have for breakfast at least once a month and I soak the "tuyo" strips in Vinegar before eating them with garlic-egg-fried rice. On the other hand... I can live on cheese... I can devour cheese pizzas in minutes -- mozzarella is love, I enjoy casseroles with cheese melt on top, I sprinkle Parmesan cheese all over my pasta and pizza and even on some dishes, I can sink my teeth into blue cheese, have Fontina cheese with red wine as a dessert, eat table cheese and rice as a meal (oh yeah gross right??) and I can scoop cream cheese varieties ( I love The Laughing Cow) straight into my mouth like candy!

- I have a bad habit of over-cleaning my ears. – my E.N.T. warned me to go easy on the Q-tips maybe at least 8 years ago… but I just cant kick the habit of sticking those q-tips (soaked in Alcohol) into my ears each day. I know it’s really bad… but I hate having to think that my ears might smell like cheese! (ahahah ok am I making you gag with all my vivid descriptions now??)


I'm done...
